This restaurant has just not been the same since the current owners took over a couple of years ago, but it is so convenient. My last visit was well over a year ago and once again it was lunch with a friend. It was very quiet and the service was good. We both opted for breakfasts (available till 5pm). My... More

We went with our 7 and 10 year old. There was something for everyone on the menu. They were very accommodating to our diary needs. The food was delicious. I highly recommend.

I dropped in here on the way to a movie with my kids. I ordered a chai latte with almond milk. I presume they make their own chai as it was very weird tasting. It was almost spicy and like no other chai I've tasted. Can't say anything about other coffee or food but I'd avoid the chai's

Had an enjoyable half hour or so with a friend while waiting for a film at the Cameo next door. The coffee was good, the light refreshment food was also good. There were a number of people chatting and dining throughout the cafe space and there was importantly a good vibe.

We came here on a very wet late Monday afternoon, great to find a cafe open serving hot food until late. The front area with hard floor and table and chairs is a bit cold but ok for a quick coffee. We wanted food, so were later permitted in the carpeted area, nice and comfortable and cosy with a gas... More

I've been here about 8 times in the last 5 years or so. Usually I come for a coffee and a treat on tbe way home and for this it is IDEAL. The coffee is good, well and quickly made and the selection of slices, muffins, mini cheesecakes enough to cause some anxiety In choosing the best one. The mixed... More

I've lived locally for a few years and hadn't been to the reel cafe as I believed it to be suited to the cinema crowd next door. I was happily proven wrong! The staff were lovely and checked in on how we were going during our meal. My dining partner enjoyed the arancini and pork belly while I ordered the... More

It started off badly with the toilet supposedly blocked half and hour ago by a babies hat, so we used the facilities in the cinema. The waitress didn't bring enough glasses, so we got some from the next table, when our water bottle ran out we had to search for another. The waitress took our kids order which was linguini... More

Very good coffee preceded a delicious lunch for two. One meal from the breakfast menu, and the other, a pie from the luncheon options, were very enjoyable and filling. Wait staff were charming.
